ANDERSON, Ind. – Speed cancels out speed . . . doesn’t it? Not always, of course, although trainer Dallas Stewart is hoping a potential duel between Always a Princess and Ash Zee could help his filly, Seeking the Title, rally to victory Saturday in the Grade 2, $200,000 Indiana Oaks at Hoosier Park.

Mine That Bird works a stiff half-mile at Saratoga to train for the Whitney on Aug. 7.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Believing that Mine That Bird got nothing out of his race in the Firecracker Handicap on July 4, trainer D. Wayne Lukas on Wednesday put a stiff mile workout into the 2009 Kentucky Derby winner in preparation for a start in the Grade 1 Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 7.

With his regular rider Calvin Borel in the irons, Mine That Bird worked a mile – one full lap around the Oklahoma training track – in 1:40.14, picking up scheduled company for the final half-mile of the breeze.
